From the producer of the original ''musical fountain'' in More Bells and Whistles, SIGGRAPH 1990.Two years in the making, the full video album is comprised of 7 pieces, each by a completely different instrument configuration. Proprietary animation software analyzes the music, and automatically drives the movement of the instruments for highly accurate and efficient animation. Essentially no traditional keyframing is used.The DVD version of this video album is due to be released in late Summer 2001.


This movie is part of the collection: SIGGRAPH

Subject: Still looks and sounds fantastic after 7 years.
Using a jazz-fusion music instrumental theme, this Rube-Goldberg-style "player piano" using what looks like ping pong balls shot out from PVC pipe has very fluid CG animation, and the video editing helps the listener capture details they can listen for in later viewings/listenings. I seem to find new things to look for each time I watch this, which makes it very entertaining. It burns well to Super VCD, so it can be made part of an entertaining "animation rarities" disk for kids that doesn't cost as much to produce as a DVD.

This type of animation with coordinated midi music is absolutely fantastic. I've been to their web site and viewed their short promo's. I will probably by their two dvd's within a month.

Well this is great video but one thing i remark is that i have seen a similar video on tv around 1991 to 1994 on a local tv station that i dont realy remember the name of the chanel it played on but i remember the name of the segment it was call Short circuitz the video i saw was in the same style as this one but with a more electro techno style i remember like pipe dream with lazer and all.

Subject: Sound to video - since the eighties
I remember first seeing this kind of thing back in the eighties, thru people like Mondo TV [Godley and Creme, of the group 10cc], and then later, using a fairlight hooked up to various video trickery at Robo Devco of Kentish Town in London. They were working for George Michael, of all people, who was very into this stuf, and put alot of money into the research of sound to light/video effects etc.

This stuf is top - keep it up!

What impressed me the most was how this film was made. The creators actually wrote software to synch it to midi music and create the visuals around that. A sweet piece, and not a bad tune either.

I remember seeing this in video form and going, "wow."

Then in 2002, at Quakecon, there was an unvailing of the "9700" 3d game card. They used a demo based on this running in real time at HDTV resolutions where you could control the cameras and I said, "wow."

This video is definitely worth downloading and viewing. There are many other animation from music videos by Animusic (Harmonic Voltage/Stick Figures/Future Retro) but I like this video because of the simplicity/realism in playing the musical instruments.

Subject: Balls, Balls, Balls
Well, you certainly can't say these guys don't have balls. It reminds me of the kind of thing Blue Man Group do live. Interesting from a technical viewpoint but not the greatest song. However, I'd love to see what these guys would do with a Peaches record.

Reviewer: Melkor - 4.00 out of 5 stars4.00 out of 5 stars4.00 out of 5 stars4.00 out of 5 stars - June 7, 2003
Subject: Midi video
Music Midi video. The complexity of the room is impressive, the idea of balls play instruments not original but has never carried out to this scale.

Overall it looks nice but i'm not impressed. Midi synchronization has never been relied on so heavily but it is used in the background of some video and audio editors to coordinate effects. This is just bringing it from the background to the foreground.

* enemy at the gates

* cowboy junkies DVD (they are also an Archive friendly band-- see the audio section)

* koyaanisqatsi (not on the Archive).

you can get their dvd from animusic.com

Subject: Midi to Movie
An exceptional predictive animation technique.
MIDI files are used to animate the instrument constructs,
Note: the background details, the hiss of air leaking, marks on the surfaces where balls missed.
Must be watched and listened to over and over.
